Happy Fourth of July – and yay for a random day off in the middle of the week!

I have to be honest – July 4 is my least-favorite holiday. Why? I HATE fireworks. I have been afraid of loud noises ever since the Great Egg Hunt Drama of 1987, back in the days when they used to shoot off a gun (with a blank in it) to start the Easter egg hunt. Why did they even do that? A whistle would have been sufficient. At least it would have spared me sleepless nights during thunderstorms and years of July 4 holiday parties huddled in my room as my brother sets off bottle rockets directly outside my window. I lost many Barbies to those bottle rockets.
Last year was actually the very first year I was
not as much of a baby brave enough to sit outside during a fireworks display. While not being half a mile away from said fireworks. They really are pretty. I just wish they weren’t so loud. At least red, white and blue are fun colors to mix together! To those celebrating, I wish you a wonderful, relaxing, flameless holiday.
I had a bunch of jumpy photos that got cut from the final three. Never fear – I’m sure they’ll crop up in the semi-annual outtakes post coming up at the end of the month!
Thanks to fabulous Brittany of brittkreigh.com for taking today’s photos!
